New Song Mourning Tyme - with tab

This is the guitar intro to a new song I'm working on. It's called "mourning tyme". I wanted to start of with a really sad feel so I started with some slow half step bends. The guitar tab should be pretty self explanatory. Watch the timing on the sextuplets at the end these get 6 notes per beat. The chord progression is E Minor/ D/F# ( with an open high e string)/ C / A Minor. The D/F# is played like a normal open D chord except the thumb frets the F#  the fifth and 4th strings are muted and the high E string is open.

In terms of note choice we pretty well stick to the E Minor Scale which is all natural notes except the F#. The exception to this is the lead in notes from the bend which are D# and Bb respectfully.  Watch the palm muted triplets in bars 9 to 11. Any questions just ask. Twitter is the best way to get me @jimifan
Note: Guitar is tuned down a half step if you want to play along.
